In a world…where hot hatches have nearly 300kW and cost nearly R1million, two contenders fight for supremacy.

That does sound a bit Hollywood but we do think this video is a bit of a blockbuster. Recently, we hired the Killarney race circuit outside Cape Town and staged a drag and track race featuring the 2017 Audi RS3 Sportback and 2016 BMW M2.

The best way to compare these two cars in detail is to use our compare tool, simply follow this link:

If you haven’t yet watched Part 1 – The Drag Race, here it is:

In part 2, we headed to the full circuit, made sure Ashley had consumed sufficient calories to sustain himself, and unleashed both cars. The aim was to set two times for each car, one standing start hot lap and one flying lap. Both cars were rigged with Racelogic V-Boxes for the most accurate timing possible and both cars were driven within a few minutes of each other, to ensure track conditions were as close to identical as possible.

That’s the video you’re about to watch, or are currently watching.

However, we didn’t want to stop there. We wanted to provide you, the viewer, with as much data and footage from our race day as possible. The V-boxes provided a tonne of great data and videos which you’ll find here: http://bit.ly/RS3vM2Track
